Lights, computers, tvs appliances – an average American burns about forty-one pounds of coal everyday for residential and transportation energy consumption. That’s almost 15,000 pounds of coal a year PER PERSON.
What Can I do?
Replace home fixtures with LED or compact fluorescent bulbs (CFL). Using a standard incandescent light bulb for one year requires over 700 pounds of coal. These use four times more energy than CFLs and seven times more than LEDs for the same amount of light. And don’t forget to turn off the lights when you’re not in the room!
Let us pray: Good and gracious God, Teach us lifestyles that are a blessing for creation
